CHANGE OF APPROACH
He initially decided to retire from competitive Para swimming after the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but changed his mind and chose to continue competing, although only in shorter distance events. "The week-long training camps and weekly 11 training sessions practically filled my childhood and younger years. Now I want something else. At the same time, preparation and less training can still have good results. As long as I feel pleasure and strength I will continue." (mindenamisport.com, 24 May 2017; lokal.hu, 27 Oct 2016)
